Paradise Valley's The Hermosa Inn and its restaurant, LON’s, reopened June 17 with enhanced care and cleanliness protocols to ensure guests’ comfort and safety.
The Hermosa Inn’s single-level layout, which features 43 luxury casitas on 6 acres, is conducive to self-distancing with its individual outdoor entrances, expansive private patios and absence of elevators and indoor hallways, according to a press release. In-room dining from the LON’s menu is available as a drop-and-go touchless service.
With newly implemented processes to promote social distancing, LON’s will be open for breakfast, lunch, Sunday brunch (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and dinner (6-9 p.m.) by reservation only.
The restaurant is offering a $49 three course summer prix-fixe menu through Sept. 13.

Entrees include Alaskan halibut; dry-aged Duroc pork chop; and roasted Mary’s chicken. Dessert follows with the option of the olive oil Semolina cake with Pinnacle Farms peaches and honey gelato, among others.
